Join me for a 2 Day “Hands-On” Precision Gage Calibration and Repair Training. This training will last 14-16 hours and will cover the following goals and topics:

This 2-day online precision gage and repair training offers specialized training in calibration and repair for the individual who has some knowledge of basic Metrology. Approximately 75% of the workshop involves “Hands-on” calibration, repair, and adjustments of micrometers, calipers, indicators, height gages, etc. The course also covers NIST Traceability, Certificates of Conformance, Gage Management, Standards, etc.
